PAMA membership is on a calendar year, and members will want to be renewed soon for three reasons:
- the member directory on our web site will be updated with current 2011 members,
- the public referral system will change to current members only, and
- the first issue of the MPPA Journal prints in March.
ACSM AND PAMA LEAD THE WAY
The American College of Sports Medicine and PAMA through the initiative Athletes and the Arts seek to integrate the science of sport and the performing arts for the mutual benefit of both.
ACSM is promoting PAMA's regional meetings to its members as part of the collaborative exchange and application of wellness, training and performance research and initiatives.
HEARING LOSS GETTING ATTENTION AND COMMENT
The CDC-NIOSH recently posted this blog to encourage more dialogue and input. Time is short, so add your comment now to the blog at: http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/blog/
Watch for a supplemental issue of the International Journal of Audiology developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in cooperation with the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA). Highlighting the research presented at NHCA’s 35th Annual Conference in February 2010, the studies featured focus on expanding the traditional boundaries of hearing loss prevention and sharing knowledge on an international level.
A keynote session of the March conference of MTNA will debut the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary, medically-based, global performance enhancement network built upon evidence-based scientific protocols and ongoing research.
Two PAMA members are on the team:
Donna Krasnow - Conditioning with Imagery for Dancers is an invaluable resource for dancers and dance educators.
